Yoga… beyond the mat… part one / L'ultime bienfait du yoga...

We all know the obvious benefits of yoga; flexibility, stretching, focus on breath, strengthening the body and it’s core ect. but it works at a much deeper level. Above all, Yoga stills the mind so that one can experience life as it is - as reality. Your practice will help remove or cease the fluctuations of the mind. “Stilling the mind to experience the ultimate reality”. This is Patanjali’s definition of yoga. The physical changes that your body will experience are quite impressive and will be felt quite early on your journey through yoga, but it is the long lasting benefits of stilling the mind that reveal the true benefits of yoga.

 Les bienfaits du yoga dépassent grandement le côté physique des postures. Il est évident que votre flexibilité ainsi que votre force physique vont grandement s’améliorer grâce aux postures de yoga. Cependant les”vraies transformations” se vivent pendant ces moments de tranquillité et de prise de conscience entre les postures. Lors de nos transitions, on se doit de revenir au moment présent en établissant une fondation sécuritaire dans toutes postures.  Selon Patanjali voici sa définition du yoga;  Le yoga est l’arrêt des pensées automatiques qui s’obtient dans une pratique intense et régulière dans un esprit de « lâcher prise ».  Donc venez explorer une session avec une intention de “ralentir” vos pensées et de se centrer sur le moment présent.


What Client's Say

Dr Nicole Basque ND, Licensed Naturopathic Doctor

I have been practicing different forms of yoga for over 10 years and am truly inspired by the magnitude of how it has transformed my life. My hot yoga practice keeps me physically and mentally fit, spiritually grounded and has taught me more about myself than any other form of physical activity. I am now a practicing Naturopathic Doctor and understand the health benefits of hot yoga, and recommend it highly to my patients. What PuraVida offers is more than just a space to get fit, it is a welcoming community of people who care about your well-being and guide you towards deepening your practice, on and off the mat. Moncton is lucky to have such a great place!
